Hillary Clinton ‘Feels the Urge’ to Run Against Trump, Says She ‘Would Win’
The twice-failed presidential candidate hints of run against Trump
Hillary Clinton admitted she couldn't help but feel “the urge” to run against President Donald Trump again, during a recent interview.
The twice-failed presidential candidate told Variety magazine at the Sundance Film Festival that the 2016 election was an 'odd outcome.'
Variety’s Ramin Setoodeh asked Mrs. Clinton:
“I know that you’re not running, but do you ever feel the urge that like, ‘I could beat him if I were’ or like ‘I wish…’”
“Yeah,” Clinton replied.
"I certainly feel the urge because I feel the 2016 election was a really odd time and an odd outcome," she added.
"And the more we learn, the more that seems to be the case," Clinton continued.
“But I’m going to support the people who are running now and do everything I can to help elect the Democratic nominee,” she concluded.
Clinton refused to discuss who she is planning to vote for in the 2020 Democratic presidential primary.
“I’m going to vote,” she said.
“I’m going to leave it at that. I’ll definitely vote. I vote every time there’s an election. And I am telling everybody here at Sundance; everywhere I go, please, please go out and vote," Clinton added.
"And then, whoever the nominee is, support the nominee, whether it’s someone you voted on or not in the primary process because the most important responsibility we all have is to retire Donald Trump.”

On Tuesday, she also warned of voter suppression in the coming election.
Clinton said voter suppression is a concern "because once the Supreme Court gutted Section 5 of the Voting Rights Act, they took away one of the most useful tools for holding states and local jurisdictions accountable for what they did around elections.”
“And I was the first candidate running for president on the Democratic side who faced both the gutting of the Voting Rights Act and Citizens United,” she said.
Last October, Clinton called for a presidential election "rematch" with Trump, declaring, “obviously, I can beat him again.”
The Former Secretary of State remarked that the "delusional" president is "obsessed" with her, stating, "so, maybe there does need to be a rematch" between her and Trump.
Hillary told PBS's Judy Woodruff: “You know, it truly is remarkable how obsessed he remains with me."
